Parking

In order to ensure that our guests have the most pleasurable experience, we have made parking improvements on and near our property so that your transportation matters remain stress-free. Below are some details of the accommodations we’ve made:

First come first serve parking is available Thursday, August 5 through Saturday, August 7 in our Valet Parking Lot for only $10 on the northeast side of the property. This lot is a short walking distance from the event so it’ll save you some steps which give you more time to celebrate!

Are you staying with us in our hotel? Or, are you an Infinity Rewards Member at the Infinite, Iconic, or Legend level? If either of these applies to you, you’ll be able to exclusively park in front of valet (limited spots available). Be sure to obtain a hotel parking pass before parking from the front desk upon check-in and/or bring your Infinity Rewards parking pass to park in this area.

The safety and security of all guests is of the utmost importance to Grand Sierra Resort. Our Security Team will have officers present in all outdoor areas to ensure the safety of all Guests. Officers will be wearing orange polo shirts, blazers or vests for easy identification. Please be sure to comply with Security’s directions to make parking and overall experience smoother and more enjoyable. Please know, Security will also be stationed at the off-site parking lot for our Guests parking a trailer.

Oversized Vehicle and Trailer Parking

Many of your beautiful, classic cars arrive to Hot August via trailer or toy hauler. For $125 per week, you can park your oversized vehicle in an off-site lot monitored 24 hours a day less than 2 miles away. To park here, first enter at valet through a designated oversized vehicle access line and then obtain a parking pass from the front desk. There will be a convenient shuttle driving to and from the property every 30 minutes to take you to the lot (125 North Edison Way, Reno, NV 89595). No oversized parking is available on the GSR property.

It is important to note that parking will be extremely limited in all lots during this special event – Please follow notices/directions provided on signs posted in all lots as vehicles may be subject to being towed for non-compliance.

Use a Rideshare Service

For a safe and easy experience, we encourage guests to use rideshare (taxi, Uber, Lyft, etc.) Our designated rideshare drop-off and pick area up will be at the bottom of the stairs in Lot 6 (South parking lot to the West of Grand Bay Driving Range).
